WWE Announces NXT UK Tour In December
The first ever international tour for the NXT brand.
During WWE's broadcast of NXT Takeover Brooklyn, they announced the first ever NXT tour of the United Kingdom. The shows will take place from December 10 to December 16 with tickets going on sale this Friday, Aug. 28 at 9 AM GMT. The seven day tour will run at these locations: Dec. 10: Metro Radio Arena in Newcastle Dec. 11: SSE Hydro in Glasgow Dec. 12: Sheffield Arena in Sheffield Dec. 13: Empress Ballroom in Blackpool Dec. 14: Capital FM Arena in Nottingham Dec. 15: MotorPoint Arena in Cardfiff Dec. 16: SSE Arena in London The names advertised for the shows include NXT Champion Finn Bálor, Samoa Joe, NXT Women's Champion Bayley, Tyler Breeze, Dana Brooke, Emma and more names to be added. A lot of it depends on who is on the NXT brand and who is on the main roster by then. It's possible that WWE could call on a former NXT Champion like Neville to be a part of the tour because he's from England and would be one of the biggest draws on the shows in the United Kingdom. Triple H, who runs NXT as well as Talent Relations in WWE, hyped up the idea that this is the first international tour in NXT history: "Coming off NXTs biggest event in history, NXT Takeover: Brooklyn, we are thrilled to announce our first international tour. The tour marks a major milestone in the continued expansion of the NXT brand." For more info on tickets go to Ticketmaster.co.uk and get yours when they go on sale this Friday.
